A possible second part of MH370 was reported last week on a ocean/river tidal sandbank in Mozambique last week. From the posted pictures, it appears to be a piece of external surface skin, is roughly triangular in shape, about 3-1/2 feet x 2 feet, appears to be composite in construction with composite honeycomb underneath, has printed on it "NO STEP", all edges are fractured except a few pulled rivet holes along part of one edge, and has no marine growth. Articles speculate that it is from the horizontal stabilizer. No official analysis yet. Finding debris on the Mozambique coastline with the possible crash location in the Indian ocean west of Australia fit with ocean current models.

Additionally a possible third part of MH370 is reported this week. Roughly a foot square external skin, white with some blue paint consistent with MH370 colors, appearing to have underlying composite honeycomb, with no marine growth. This piece was found on Reunion island by the same person, a member of a beach cleanup crew,  who discovered the first piece (the flaperon) in July 2015.

It looks like Australia is about to wrap up its underwater search. It would be interesting to see how they made out with their underwater sonar vehicles.
